    I've been doing even MORE digging on this problem. I noticed something odd about the Interrupts from my machine...the soundcard and ethernet card are BOTH on IRQ 16

    [kyral@HikariNoYuki ~]$ cat /proc/interrupts
               CPU0       CPU1
      0:     405196          0   IO-APIC-edge      timer

    Maybe this has something to do with it....

    Kyral, you are correct, I have a Gateway MT3705.
    If you ever get the sound working on yours, I would really appreciate it if you posted the winning formula

    According to a thread in Ubuntu's Forums, the sound is being rerouted to the USB ports. So if you plug in USB Speakers or USB Headphones, then you get sound...interesting problem

    Fedora Core 6 - sound problem with Gateway hardware - solution

    This is a solution to the problem described in this thread.

    I was running Fedora Core 6 2.6.20-1.2925.fc6 on a Gateway GT4024 with hardware
    "ATI Technologies Inc SB450 HDA Audio"
    and it also did not work for me; i.e. no sound.

    This is the fix that worked for me:

    I see a new kernel update in testing. So, an official update is going to be released soon if you want to wait.

    I also tried this, updated to kernel 2.6.20-1.2932.fc6 and my sound is also back. Thanks!

    I clicked on the link and installed kernel-xen-2.6.20-1.2932.fc6.x86_64.rpm
    and have sound back.

  6. #15 how to affect that patch on ArchLinux. I assume the RedHat guys are going to send it upstream at some point..

    Hi Tim, I have Compac Presario 1245, 3GB HD,330 MHz,160 MB RAM, Zenwalk 5.2,WLANUSB on router SpeedportW 700V, DSL 6000
    How to disable external amplifier?

    Also you might know something about connection speed: It takes me minutes to search in this forum. Reading of all the pages takes too much time. I should mention that from time to time there is a warning "Unresponsive scripts". I use as browser iceweasel2. Any expierience how to attack this? The download speed is fine, about a few hundred Mb/s. Your help is very much appriciated. Hardi2000
